Don't Think Of Yourself

Don't think of yourself too highly
We are but a speck of dust
That God has gloriously clothed with flesh
That we in Him might trust
And benefitted us with thought
That we may will to do
And choose between good or evil
With an accountability too

For He is greatly to be praised
Who doth all things well
That gives to us an opportunity
Our choice of Heaven or Hell
The Truth be told.... He's Jesus Christ
The Word becoming flesh
Who died that we might live again
He came to earth to bless

And give to man an eternal hope
That Satan cannot dismiss
For greater is He who lives within
Than he who can only hiss
All power is in that precious name
That name of Jesus Christ
For He has conquered death and lives
He's paid our ransom price

A speck of dust but what a man
That God has clothed us with
That we might come and know Him thus
By having a childlike faith
And sins damnation nailed to the cross
He bore it all for me
So I can shout to all the world
The Son has made me free!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
